Seton Hall has pulled the upset over the Wildcats for the victory in the Big East tournament and it comes after Villanova and Seton Hall are playing on Thursday in the Big East tournament quarters and it comes after the Butler and Seton Hall game on Wednesday in the Big East Tournament and the first round matchup is streaming live on Fox Sports 1 on TV from Madison Square Garden and has the bulldogs looking to get a jump on the Pirates and the game starts up at 7 pm ET.
Butler comes into the game after a win against Seton Hall and now they get another crack at the team right away as the Big East tournament returns to MSG and this new version of the conference has been very competitive and now they head into the first round. The team comes in scoring about 70 points per game and they have not been as efficient as they were when Brad Stevens was there, but they still are Cinderella darlings to many and others feel that Wichita State is the new Butler this season after their undefeated year and Final Four appearance last season.
Butler comes into the game after two straight wins and that came after seven straight losses in the conference and that nearly derailed the season for the team and they lost to tough teams in there, including Villanova as well as Georgetown and Xavier along with Creighton. Butler finished low in the conference standings and now they are hoping for a nice enough run to give them some respectability back and if they win in a miracle, they get the automatic bid to the tournament.
Seton Hall comes in after the loss to Butler and they have been playing well, averaging 72 points per game and shooting over 45 percent and they are looking to break a stretch of losing three of the past four games. The team won over Xavier and lost to Creighton as well and they also have a loss to Villanova this year.
